Trump Aides Use Rallies To Keep Him from Melting Down

Good Day World!

Two rallies in two days.

Trump's aides are pulling rabbits out of hats to keep Trump entertained so he doesn't have a complete meltdown. 

The first rally in Minnesota was the longest one Trump's had since coming into office. It also bore the distinction of being his most profane yet, in a 104 minute rant.  

Meanwhile...

While more evidence of dirty dealing with the Ukraine unfolds daily, Trump played "Wag the Dog" and gave Turkey the okay to invade Northern Syria, to the dismay of our partners the Kurds.

On rallies:

I suspect there's going to be a lot more rallies in the days and weeks ahead. Trump's minions know he's barely clinging to sanity while trying to deal with the assault of an impeachment inquiry that's moving swiftly. 

The rallies serve two purposes. 

One, they put Trump in an alternate universe where he's so popular he could shoot someone on 5th Avenue in New York and no one cares. And his lies get cheers!

Two, the rallies are a distraction from the bad news coming out, providing the right wing media with meat to chew on in these troubled times. Nothing like videos with cheering supporters.

But...

According to a collection of major polls Trump is losing supporters and independents rapidly. 

The Trump administration - especially the big players like AG Barr and Pompeo - are barely treading water in a turbulent sea of criminal evidence.

It's getting harder every day for Republican lawmakers to support Trump as more evidence of his corruption becomes public knowledge.

The White House messaging department is non-existent. Trump took that job over, and is doing a poor job of defending himself by asking other nations to investigate his political rival Joe Biden.



The only place Trump is going to hear shouts of adulation in the future are at his rallies. The White House is no longer a safe place for our moron-in-charge.

Related: Trump makes at least 12 false claims at his longest rally.

Thought for the day: Trump in prison with African-Americans, and Hispanics, when the lights go out at night.

Our Businessman-in-Charge is Selling Out America


Good Day World!

The first hint that Trump was more interested in making mega real estate deals than being an honest president came when it was discovered he wanted to build one of his "towers" in Moscow, Russia - America's number one enemy.

That business plan was concealed from Americans while he was running for office. 

By the time news of his proposed Trump Tower in Putin's backyard became public, it was buried in a two-year long investigation of Russian interference in the 2016 election.

After successfully obstructing justice in the Russia probe, with the help of top Trump cronies like AG Bill Barr, Trump claimed victory - telling anyone who'd listen there was "no collusion," and he was exonerated by the Mueller report.

Anyone who read the report knows that isn't true. It's certainly not what Mueller said during a House hearing under oath.

Meanwhile, Trump the businessman has been protecting Turkey's dictator - and giving him the okay to attack American allies, the Kurds.

Even Republicans are furious over the sell-out of our allies against ISIS. 

World leaders have united in condemnation of Turkey's Syria operation.

In the face of another stupid foreign policy move that's having massive repercussions in the Middle East and here at home, Trump had a re-election rally in Minnesota yesterday.

His cronies hurriedly scheduled the rally to re-charge Trump's sagging spirits. They knew it was great therapy for a uber-narcissist, and it's worked in the past.

Until that great businessman and stable genius is stopped, he (and his family) will continue to sell out America to the highest bidder.

Time for me to walk on down the road...                                                                                                                                                                                                                                                                                                                                                                                                                                                                                                                                                                                                                                                                                                                                                                                                                                                                                                                                                                                                                                                                                                                                                                                                                                                                                                                                                                                                                                                                                                                                                                                                                                                                                                                                                                                                                                                                                                                                                                                                                                                                                                                                                                                                                                                                                                                                                                                                                                                                                                                                                                                                                                                                                                                                                                                                                                                                                                                                                                                                                                                                                                                                                                                                                                                                                        

Why?

Because Trump has two towers in Istanbul that are still making money for him.

I've heard many Trump supporters say they voted for him because he's such a good businessman. My reply has always been if he was such a good businessman why did he go bankrupt numerous times?

And why have Mr. Businessman's properties worldwide been the focus of breaking numerous laws? The answer is Trump has always been a criminal disguised as a real estate guru, and reality show personality top executive.

Myths have been built around a lot less.

The myth that Trump is a great businessman has been destroyed in less than three years, leaving the country lurching in the political chaos he's created.

We know Trump could care less if thousands of people die defending their cities from an extremist country ruled by a ruthless dictator.

Trump crony/co-conspirator, Mike Pompeo, won't even say if the Kurds are our allies now!

Why Would Any Country Want to Partner With the U.S. Under Trump?


                                       Good Day World!

One of the many lowlights of the Trump regime has been it's wholesale sell-out of it's allies.

As Turkey's military pours across the Syrian border in an act of war against our partner the Kurds, the international community is looking on in shock. 

How could America abandon them?

The betrayal of America's comrade-in-arms against ISIS is a sure sign no country can count on our rogue regime. America's betrayal under Trump, is more than just a black eye against democracy.

Trump's betrayal of the Kurds was a gift to Putin and Assad.

It's a declaration of nationalism, and isolation. The message is loud and clear after three years under Trump's corrosive foreign policies... 

It's now America versus the world. 

The guardian of democracy worldwide is abdicating to a wannabe dictator by abandoning long-held treaties with foreign governments. Treaties that made the world a safer place.

Just yesterday, Trump's minions announced the U.S. was exiting the "Open Skies" treaty. 

Two months ago, Trump formally withdrew from the Intermediate-Range Nuclear Forces Treaty with Russia ending a landmark arms control pact.

As the world watches with morbid fascination, Americans are considering impeaching their president. The chaos surrounding the administration doesn't bode well for stability of any kind.

The possibility of future alliances are disappearing as Turkey's armed forces role across the Syrian border and we just stand by and watch.

The Day America Decided Not To Defend Freedom

Good Day World!

There's a beginning to all things big and small.

When Trump was sworn into office, a seismic shift in ethics, morality, and patriotism was set off, leading to the course we're on today... 

… where freedom is no longer being defended by it's biggest champion - America.

Trump has steered the ship-of-state into murky waters where our government no longer supports democracies across the world. His frolics with dictators are well-documented.

No words of encouragement are coming from the American government for those people who want freedom in Hong Kong. Instead, Trump "hopes" everything works out peacefully between China, and Hong Kong.

Yeah right.

The Ukrainian people have fought for their freedom and have a new fragile government that desperately needs America's help. 

So what happens?

Our corrupt POTUS punks the new regime and will only agree to send the military aid so badly needed by the struggling democracy, if they'll go after his political enemy Joe Biden.

Trump and his minions have idly stood by and watched governments increasingly shed their thin fa├žade of long established democratic practices, when international incentives and pressures for reform were stronger.

The United States is no longer carrying the banner of freedom for oppressed people worldwide. Trump's corrupt regime, and isolationist creed, has destroyed America's standing in the international community.

For a more detailed insight into what's happened to America and the world, there's an organization that has been around for 13 years called, Freedom in the World.

Here's an article from their website: Democracy in Retreat.

The 'Joke' is on the GOP Who Are Afraid to Face Reality

Good Day World!

Jokers are big news lately.

The release of the movie "Joker" hyped with a storm of negative pre-press attention, managed to break several box office records.

It was a hit with the public in America, and Australia.

Meanwhile...jokers on the political front...

The latest defense for Trump's treasonous remarks asking China for help against his political rival Joe Biden, can be described as The Joker Defense.


Trump minion Marco Rubio (left) introduced the GOP's latest attempt to cover their corrupt leader by telling reporters Trump didn't really mean what he said.

He was joking, according to Rubio/aka The Penguin, who went on to spin how easy the liberal press is baited by Trump's jokes.

Ask yourself when was the last time you heard a Republican say Trump was just joking? Remember when Sarah Sanders favorite dodge was "He's joking," while she was Trump's talking head at the White House?

Watching Senator Roy Blunt, Congressman Jim Jordon, Senators Marco Rubio and Lindsey Graham using the joke defense is a sign they've ran out of any real defensible arguments.

But what Trump did was no joke. 

Americans saw and heard him suggest Communist China look into a private American citizen's affairs for political gain. No amount of cover can conceal his treasonous appeal.

As Republicans scramble like a bunch of cockroaches exposed to the light, the wheels of impeachment are rolling along with more evidence against Trump in the Ukraine scandal.

Most Congressional Republicans are mainly staying silent on Trump's call to investigate Biden. It appears to be their best option, as evidence grows daily against Trump.

Here's what I know:

The joke is on the GOP who are afraid to face reality!

Impeachment: There's a Season for All Things

Good Day World!

Autumn leaves are glorifying landscapes from the East to the West coast; gathering in colorful carpets on forest floors where whispers of impeachment ride the winds of change.

A winter of discontent, like no other in American history, is sending shivers down the spines of common citizens struggling with issues like health care, and immigration reforms. 

Hopes for any helpful legislation are buried beneath a layer of polarizing rhetoric so toxic the nation is hopelessly divided. The government is crippled. An orange ape is sitting in the oval office shitting on every law of the land.

This apocalyptic winter is fraught with challenges, from increasingly severe temperatures because of global warming, to the sundering of a nation once united.

The bitter business of watching and hearing a president out of control is weighing heavily on the national soul. Consciences are colliding with the very real efforts of Trump to overthrow our democracy daily.

Brazen efforts to obstruct justice, and Trump's abuse of power, is causing showers of condemnation by a stricken nation seeking relief after nearly three years of chaos. 

Trump and his corrupt cronies stand in the eye of the storms ahead. How they weather them is up to popular opinion forcing senate Republicans to renounce his power grab. 

Polls show the appetite for impeachment is growing during this turbulent Autumn. The winter ahead promises to be a bitter one for Trump supporters. Impeachment is a certainty in the House.

The final battle will be in the Senate this winter, or possibly next spring. That's when we'll find out if we're a Republic, or a monarchy.

There's a season for all things. This Autumn it's impeachment.

Time for me to walk on down the road...

Tucker Carlson Didn't Really Say That About Trump... Did he?


                                      Good Day World!

The rumor is true.

Tucker Carlson, Fox's talking head with no brain, dissed his master Trump in an op-ed! I know... it's shocking.

Is it a sign that even Trump's supporters are gradually slipping away and going back to their basements and hidey-holes? I'm not so sure.

So here's what the right-wing media star said, along with another headcase, Neil Patel (the co-founder of the Daily Caller), in an editorial published on 10/3/19:

"Donald Trump should not have been on the phone with a foreign head of state encouraging another country to investigate his political opponent, Joe Biden. Some Republicans are trying, but there's no way to spin this as a good idea.

And this: 

"Like a lot of things that Trump does, it was pretty over-the-top. Our leader's official actions should not be about politics. Those two things need to remain separate. Once those in control of our government use it to advance their political goals, we become just another of the world's many corrupt countries. America is better than that."  

How about that?

Does this op-ed mean there's trouble in Trump propaganda land? Is a number one minion jumping ship? I don't think so. It could be a new tactic to defend our liar-in-chief, according to one political analyst;

NBC's, Benjy Sarlin, thinks the op-ed was a "...pretty massive signal to pivot away from defending the behavior (which has been a brutal slog so far for those who've tried) and instead toward arguing impeachment goes too far."

Still, I'm surprised. I never seen a political hack of Carlson's ilk say something sane... (and dare I say truthful?), even for a few sentences.

I know Carlson will continue to carry Trump's bucket of piss. He's got viewers to please and propaganda to spread. 

I think we can properly conclude Carlson's sudden foray into truth-telling was just a mirage in a desert of deceit.
